Rapper Wale says a gay rapper would be accepted by the rap community.

The 30-year-old Wale is currently promoting his latest studio album, The Album About Nothing.

In an appearance on Larry King Now, host Larry King asked Wale whether the rap community would accept an openly gay rapper.

“I think so,” Wale answered. “I think 2015 is another world. We got a black president. I would think there would be a gay rapper before a black president.”

“It's like socially accepted. People see people. It's like taboo to speak bad on the gay community. It used to be taboo to be a part of the gay community, now it's taboo to speak bad on them.”

“Look at Indiana,” King noted, “what they've gone through.”
